    出雲横田駅のすぐ横です。松本清張の「砂の器」にも出てくる雲集そろばんの歴史を語ってくれる施設・。 そろばんを製作する工程や工具、さらに世界のそろばんのコレクションなど内容豊富です。 電卓パソコン全盛の現代ですが、ここへ来るとそろばんも風情があっていいなと思いました。

    Shimane Izumo-shi Sadacho Azabara 1671-1

    事前情報の確認不足で、建物の中の見学中止になっているのを知らずに行ってしまったので、メインの部分を観光できていません。 建物横にちょっとした窪みがあり、その場所がとても不思議。 岩の隙間から冷風が吹き出てとても心地よいです。 ただ、時間が経過すると逆に寒くなってきます。 どのような仕組みなのか分かりませんが貴重な体験をさせてもらいました。 次回は、コロナの影響で入れなかった場所も見てみたいと思いま...

Shimane Areas

around-area-map

What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
